Slough Clocks

I took these photos earlier this week during a visit to Slough, unfortunately I was rushed for time so I only managed to photograph a few of Slough's clocks.

Slough is located west of London and is a 15 minute train journey from Paddington Station. The town centre is undergoing a major redevelopment. My walk from the station to my meeting was a maze of diversions around many different construction sites. I'm sure it will be 'amazing' when complete!

Slough Clocks
Slough Station

Slough Clocks
Slough Station Clock - the time was wrong. I took the photo at 9:38am but the clock shows 6:40am!

Slough Clocks
Slough Town Hall

Slough Clocks
Town Hall Clock, this clock was also showing the incorrect time. The time was 9:55 but the clock showed 10:05 am.

Slough Clocks
Kashmiri Karahi restaurant.
The restuarant is an authentic pakistani restaurant situated in Salthill park in Slough.

Slough Clocks
Kashmiri Karahi restaurant clock- also with the incorrect time.

Slough Clocks
University of West London

Slough Clocks
University of West London Clock. Again with the incorrect time. The two clock faces visible here both show a different time, and again both clocks are wrong!

Slough Clocks
I have no idea what clock this is. I spotted the clock in the distance and took a photo. (also has the wrong time)

I have a theory: the more clocks an area has the wealthier it is. This certainly holds true for the city of London. In the square mile of the city I've never seen so many clocks, and most of them work!

Slough's Town centre has it's fair share of clocks, all though a number of them have the wrong time :(


Maybe with a bit of research I'll be able to come up with a graph mapping a city's wealth to the number of working clocks :)
